"I started in Martial Arts in Springfield MA before I started to walk" says the proud young kid from Western Mass. " My dad started to teach me the first moves of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and I did know how to crawling yet. I learn how to apply a arm bar before I walk and I learn a submission choke before I start to run, that’s how young I started in Martial Arts. I am glad my dad is a long time Martial Arts competitor and coach and only he already pass for everything I am going he is guiding me to have the right steps. I have been training all aspects of Mixed Martial Arts, I am training BJJ, Judo, Wrestling, boxing, muay thai, and I started this month a strength and conditioning program. I want to be the best that I can be and take advantage of this full opportunity that God is giving to me! Some people ask me how I train and what I do to be strong and it is pretty simple: Train every day! My dad says that he can teach me all the techniques but the strength that we get through the years training daily on the mat is something that we just get putting time on the mat, no one can teach it!
